Daily Nuggets: Golden Knights Calm, NHL Trade Talk, a Team in Salt Lake City?



Vegas Golden Knights, Adin Hill, Alex Pietrangelo

This is why you participate. This is why you watch the games in October. And THIS is the Stanley Cup Final. The Vegas Golden Knights have a workmanlike attitude permeating their team. We asked the boys about their “moment” when they knew the team could win it all. The Golden Knights have three big advantages over the Florida Panthers are the series begins. Also in the Nuggets, the Winnipeg Jets will fill the NHL trade rumors, the Colorado Avalanche have more questions as the body cam footage from the Valeri Nichushkin incident was released, and the Pittsburgh Penguins continued cleaning house.

Also, San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson wants to see the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup.

There was an air of calm around the Golden Knights Friday at Stanley Cup media day. I got some interesting reactions to my questions, which were contemplative and thoughtful. No one seemed nervous or tense. There is a workmanlike feel around this team.

I like it. But you never know until that puck drops.

This will be a fun series, and this time I think you’ll see the Golden Knights swimming in Vegas fountains. When I first came out here more than a month ago to cover the rest of the playoff run, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I love this city, but more importantly, I’ve enjoyed reporting for you. We haven’t yet built enough community- comment and discuss the stories! Click the comment button and have at it — but we’ve built VHN into a top VGK news outlet. And I’m desperately searching for that next beat writer who brings you the best. Heck, I may give up Pittsburgh and bring the furniture out here.

Let’s get to the hockey…

Vegas Golden Knights / Stanley Cup Final:

The Golden Knights have three “BIG” advantages over the Florida Panthers in the SCF. Golden Knights analysis.

I asked several players when did they “know” they had a shot at the Cup? The answer was a little surprising but made sense. Golden Knights locker room.

Calgary Hockey Now: New Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brad Treliving had to address the Matthew Tkachuk trade. He said the Flames could still win the trade. Ummm?? For now, it’s a Florida win in the Matthew Tkachuk trade.

Florida Hockey Now: Where’s the beef? The mystery of the postgame dog bone has been solved. Florida Panthers locker room.

Sportsnet: In the latest 32 Thoughts, Elliotte Friedman spent a lot of time on the possibility that the Vegas Golden Knights could have a new rival-will the NHL relocate or expand to Salt Lake City?

Winnipeg Sun: NHL trade rumors are about to explode on the tundra. The Winnipeg Jets failed, and they have big names who are pending free agents in one year. Do the math — who stays will be on the trade block?

Boston Hockey Now: The Boston Bruins are “exploring” ways to keep Tyler Bertuzzi

Nashville Hockey Now: Why new GM Barry Trotz pulled the trigger and fired coach Jon Hynes. Nashville Predators news.
